Make Your Own White Cheddar Popcorn

White cheddar popcorn is a favorite for kids that want a quick mid-afternoon snack, college students looking to stretch their dime and adults who want a quick and easy way to cap their night. Not only is cheddar popcorn delicious and easy to make, but it's also healthier than many other snacks.

White Cheddar Popcorn Recipe

Ingredients You Will Need:
4 cups of popped corn
3 tablespoons of melted butter
¼ cup of white cheddar cheese powder
¼ teaspoon of mustard powder
¼ teaspoon of cayenne pepper
Salt and pepper (optional)

Melt the butter in a small sauce pan. You don't want the butter to be too hot, so keep the heat at a minimum. Once melted, pour the butter into a large bowl and pour in the cheese, mustard and cayenne pepper. Stir the mixture, turning the bowl while mixing the ingredients together. You want the mixture to be as blended as possible. If you desire, salt and pepper to taste.

Pop your popcorn and add the white cheddar seasoning. Be sure to not only add the seasoning to the top but throughout the popcorn. Try separating the popcorn into bowls and adding the seasoning before combining the cups of popcorn into one large bowl. This will help ensure the seasoning is evenly spread out.

Making your own white cheddar popcorn isn't just for snack time. You can make and bag the popcorn to give as gifts. Remember that if you're planning to save your popcorn either for another day or to give as a gift, you should keep the mixture in an airtight container stored at room temperature. Place the popcorn in ziplock bags inside of the containers to keep your popcorn from becoming stale too quickly.
